French toast tower with strawberry cream cheese honey and mint

Category: food


1 For the French toast: Whisk together the spices, sugar, eggs, milk, and vanilla extract in a shallow bowl.

2 Melt 1 tbsp butter in a large non-stick frying pan set over a medium heat.

3 Dip two slices of the brioche into the egg mixture, turning them to coat.

4 Fry in the butter until golden-brown underneath, about 2-3 minutes. Flip and cook for a further 2-3 minutes before sliding out of the pan; cover loosely with aluminium foil to keep warm.

5 Repeat steps 2-4 for the remaining French toast, using fresh butter for each batch.

6 To assemble: Gently warm the honey in a small saucepan set over a medium heat. Spread the French toast with cream cheese and top with strawberry slices and some mint leaves.

7 Spoon a little warmed honey over the French toast before stacking on a serving plate. Spoon over the remaining honey before serving.
